Clinton PTA Mixology Night

2020 has been quite a year so far. Who needs a cocktail? We see all those hands raised out there. The Clinton PTA understands and we're here to help. We’ve recruited The Barlingual Chicks (Katy and Chrissy) to create a fun mixology class online where we will make and drink three different cocktails over the course of the evening. They are hosting a bourbon night exclusively for the Clinton School! You'll learn the basic cocktail know-how, try different flavor profiles and see just how versatile (and fast-acting) bourbon can be. So join us as we raise a glass and raise some money for all the students. The party starts at 8pm on October 24th.

 

Details:

Date – Saturday, October 24th

Time: 8-10p EST

Platform: Zoom

Cost - $40, plus the cost of ingredients – a list will be provided to all registered participants

Clinton Week of Respect

 

Ms. Tapia is happy to announce that CLINTON Week of Respect kicks off Monday, October 5th. There are many fun ways for Clinton kids to be involved in promoting kindness and respect this week.

 

Each day there is a new clothing theme for the kids to represent different ways of being kind and respectful. See the image below for more details!

 

 

 

 

Another fun way to get involved is to create a Walk Way Of Respect in your driveway or sidewalk - then upload a photo to the Week of Respect Padlet!

 

 

 

 

The "Anti-Bullying Bill of Rights Act (P.L.2010, c.122) requires that the week beginning with the first Monday in October of each year (October 5 - 9, 2020) be designated as the Week of Respect in New Jersey. To recognize the importance of social and emotional learning and character education, school districts, charter schools and renaissance school projects are required to observe the week by providing age-appropriate instruction focused on preventing/remediating harassment, intimidation, and/or bullying."

  • Help to be the touch point for families that may need to reach out to the teacher or PTA for support.
  • Collect donations and purchase gifts for teacher for holidays and teacher appreciation week.
